No sex predominance is reported, usually occurring in children less cisyico two years of age 2. The most frequently observed pattern of cystic hygromas is that hibroma a mass with iso- or hypointense signal on T1-weighted sequences, depending on the protein content of the lymphatic fluid, and hyperintense on T2-weighted sequences 1,2. The newborns two higromx and one boy were submitted to surgery right after the birth, except for one of them who was evaluated by MRI after one week of life to restudy the lesion extent, confirming the pre-natal findings.

However, as found in the present report, this type of sample or even fetal blood by cordocentesis becomes unable to obtain due to obstructions by large cysts or oligohydramnios 2.

The aim of our study was to report a fetus with Turner syndrome TS diagnosed by karyotype from cystic hygroma CH fluid, emphasizing the applications and importance of this procedure.

MRI also plays a significant role in the differential diagnosis of this disease, especially with encephalocele, cervical myelomeningocele, teratoma and hemangioma 8that present different prognosis, requiring different management.
